“My father blessed me today. He is not in good health now but maintaining a high spirit………I’m proud of him because of his unblemished morality. He is an institution and his traditional knowledge is plenteous.” (sic) Rijiju wrote.
In his letter of tribute, the Minister also mentioned that his father has always been a given and that he would “never go against his principles” in his life.
“He only serves but never takes anything from others. He has not built a house or any single property outside of his ancestral place not even at his MLA Constituency headquarter Bomdila. I’ll never go against his principles in my life. People tell me that as a local MP I must have a house at Itanagar and other places but for me building houses and assets in people’s heart is more valuable,” Rijiju added.
